Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island is a must-see place. This is a vast area of volcanic activity and devastation. Be sure to explore the lava tubes and walk the trails. Volcanoes National Park is located about 30 miles southwest of Hilo. It is home to one of the most active volcanoes on the planet, namely, Kilauea volcano.
These are exceptionally long lava tubes. After this main tube there was another tube but I did not venture in because I did not have a flashlight. I most certainly would have ventured in if I had appropriate illumination with me.
On our second trip to the Big Island we took an airplane tour and got photos of lava pouring into the sea. The different temperatures created waterspouts under the steam plume. The volcanoes are both destroyers and creators. The Big Island grows larger as the lava pours into the sea expanding the landmass.
